Great Voices of Rock and R&B

Great Voices of Rock and R&B Start Date: Thursday 9/12/2019 — End Date: Thursday 10/17/2019 Admission:$150 for 6 week series, $30/drop in A 6-week Musical Journey with Pete Elman Throughout the rich, long arc of popular music, there has always existed the great singer, the individual who elevates the great song to another dimension, a place where, as listeners, we are thrilled and inspired for the rest of our lives when we hear their work. Great Voices covers the lives and careers of six legendary rock and R&B singers from 1955 to the present. Although all of them are also known as songwriters and performers, they have made their marks as vocalists, who could rock our socks off one minute, while with the next breath cajole the sweetest melodies from the material they so passionately tackled. In this class we will take a chronological cultural and musical journey through the lives and careers of the following 6 “Great Voices”: the “Genius,” Ray Charles; the “King of Soul,” Sam Cooke; the “Voice,” Roy Orbison; the “Queen of Rock n’ Roll,” Tina Turner, the soulful and indefatigable Bonnie Raitt, and the “Queen of Country-Rock,” Linda Ronstadt. The course will feature several media formats including lectures, slideshows, photographs, recorded music, film clips and the use of live music. The instructor will play piano, guitar and sing, and will choose appropriate examples from each genre to perform in class.

Will Durst’s BoomeRaging: from LSD to OMG

Will Durst’s BoomeRaging: from LSD to OMG Start Date: Saturday 8/31/2019 — End Date: Saturday 8/31/2019 Admission:$25/Advance, $30/Day of Show Will Durst’s BoomeRaging: from LSD to OMG, is an uproarious comedic tribute to the joys, achievements, frustrations, and looming doom of the Baby Boom Generation. In this rollicking 85-minute monologue, Durst explains why his chronologically gifted brothers and sisters should continue to refuse to grow old in the face of gravity no matter how many times they forget their password retrieval question. It’s what happens when acid flashbacks meet dementia. A celebration of the maturation of the Boomer Nation: culminating in an extra, added special treat – the Meaning of Life. Ably assisted by his genially acerbic wit and trusty overhead projector, Durst explores the Boomer revolutions, evolutions and still vibrant role in today’s youth obsessed society (which we invented, for crum’s sake). He shamelessly strokes egos and pats hands, encouraging the Flower Power Generation to persevere through segments entitled The Psychedelic Colonoscopy, Still Doing Drugs, Only Now There’s a Co-Pay & From the Summer of Love to the Winter of Our Incontinence. It’s funny. It’s smart. Clean and uplifting, even. A unique theatrical event delivered with stand-up timing and not less than a modicum of poetry. Special Note: Due to the use of startlingly archaic technology, children under the age of 40 will not be admitted unless accompanied by a guardian or if they bring a note. We apologize for any inconvenience. Location: 2513 Blanding Ave Alameda Contact: Tina Blaine info@rhythmix.org URL: https://www.rhythmix.org/events/will-dursts-boomeraging/
